After years of using Mach 3 and other multi-blade razors, I finally decided to go the DE route. I used to use a DE Bic years ago but now I decided to go high-end so to speak. I just bought an 56' Gillette Super Speed on ebay and bought an extended sampler pack from West Coast Shaving. I can't wait to try my new "toys". I've already used great shave products from Trumpers, Taylor, Caswell-Massey, Col. Conk and KMF with fantastic results. I will follow West Coast's advise and this threads advice on starting with one and working up.
